As Dire recognised - it's from the cover of the Workingman's/American Beauty songbook that came out in (I think) 1973.

Thank you for the offer re emoticons, but I'll pass up on the temptation. I think if I were to start peppering the pithy posts with pixellated popart it would be like the ravens gathering for Ragnarok - the world's end would be hot upon its heels.

(I'd just mess it up anyway...)

A true Wordsmith would never use an emoticon to say "fuck you". That would be eloquence wasted.

Stick to your guns Rob! er, words.......

can't possibly scroll thru all this fol-der-ol to see if it's been mentioned already, but my pick--at great risk of incurring rob's wrath for having responded to the question at all--is WAKE OF THE FLOOD.

So many great faves on one nice release.

#2-MARS HOTEL
#3- BLUES FOR ALLAH.

and, for the hell of it, A NEW TOPIC: my FAVORITE COMMENTS EVER MADE BY BAND TO CROWD (really trying to piss Rob off here) are

1) When Bobby tells a guy not to climb the fence "cuz it's gonna cut ya", then when the guy does anyway and complains, bob sez "well don't climb the fence then idiot!"

2) Phil starting the Boise show in '83 with "Citizens of Boise--submit or perish, you are a conquered people!", and

3)the whole band yelling at the guy at SPAC in 1985 climbing the tower to get back in his seat cuz there's 50,000 people waiting for him to do so. Real nice Stagger Lee follows.

How about "We need you to act like a mature responsible audience" (5/2/70) I think. Or "These New Yorker's, they'll beleive anything"

Me get pissed off? No, sir, I love this. 1 and 3 I know but 2 I'm going to have to seek out urgently - must hear that.

And don't forget this classic from 1970:

'Right now we're missing King Kong versus Godzilla... I didn't get to see King Kong, but Godzilla, he was one motherfucker.'

Stage banter comes no better than this.


edit: Grendel, if you want to start off a new thread on this go right ahead - I think it would be a fun thing to do. I'd do it myself but it's 1.30 am here and I need to catch some Zs. Over to you!

hope you got some good zzzzz's, rob!

...and i'm making it a priority to hear that Godzilla banter later today. That's good stuff.

btw, the Boise comment leads into a terrific "Wang Dang Doodle" from that show. Can't remember the specific date or I'd provide a link.
